Mr & Mrs

Evening all just been watching "The Apprentice" and I'm sooo chuffed Melody was fired, wiped that smirk right off her face lol. Anyway I was asked to make a wedding card for a work colleague. I decided to go with a black and white colour scheme as it always looks smart and came up with this design.

I have used my Cuttlebug a lot on this card using long forgotten dies and embossing folders. The hearts were cut with a heart die and represent the Bride and Groom. I added some pearls for the buttons and a little glitter dust. The white heart was embossed with my "Birds & Swirls" embossing folder.

I have added an embossed panel to the bottom of the card and some luxurious black velvet ribbon to add a touch of elegance.

The stamp used on the insert is from "Lili Of The Valley" stamps and I have embossed 2 champagne glasses into the bottom corner.

I hope she likes the card, unusual for me not to have a stamped image on the front lol.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
